Andrew Lee (GM) accepting the award

We are very proud to announce that our latest innovation, the PM54, has been awarded Product of the Year for 2019 in the Alarm category at the Australian Security Industry Awards for Excellence.

The Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL) awards are the most prestigious in Australia with an independent judging panel of industry veterans and experts.

The PM54 is a 3 in 1 connectivity solution that combines a High-Speed 4G Router with a Wi-Fi Hotspot and an Alarm Communicator. It provides secure comms for any network-ready device including intruder alarms, IP cameras, access control systems and IoT devices.

Permaconn's managed signalling service delivers market leading service and 99.99% uptime

Permaconn's managed signalling service for mission-critical comms is a private, highly secure, highly resilient connection between protected premises and Monitoring Centres.

Our Dual-SIM service delivers 99.99% uptime - higher than can be achieved by any single network operator.

Stand-out features of our managed service are:

Market Leading Network Uptime: With four dedicated enterprise-grade servers across two geographically separate data centres and three independent communications paths (across 4G and IP) to deliver 99.99% uptime.

Industrial Grade Security and Privacy: We use Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) with dedicated private APNs and end-to-end encryption (AES128 - the same as banks) to ensure network and data security.

Continuous Integrity Checking: We continuously monitor the integrity of all links across our service including those between customers' alarm systems, our communications hardware and network. Any loss of connectivity is reported to the Monitoring Centre to action as an alarm event.
